Is it just me or is April 1971 one of the best months ever? This must be Pig's peak with the band. 4/8, 4/13, 4/17, the Fillmore shows, it just doesn't get any better (and I'm an 80's guy saying this)

April was great, but so was November and December of '71. December just SHINES! I don't think they played an off show during the whole month! From Boston, to Madison Square Garden, the Fox Theatre in St. Louis, the Hill Auditorium in Ann Arbor and Winterland in San Francisco you will find a treasure trove of shows. A VERY IMPRESSIVE run of shows! Here is but ONE favorite from December:
